Uber Eats (previously stylized as UberEATS) is an American online food ordering and delivery platform launched by Uber in 2014 and based in San Francisco, California.[1]

Users can order food from participating restaurants on their website or with a smartphone/tablet application (only iOS and Android).

History

Uber was founded in 2009 by Garrett Camp (also the founder of StumbleUpon), and Travis Kalanick.[2][3]

The company made its foray into food delivery in August, 2014 with the launch of the UberFRESH service in Santa Monica, California.[4] In 2015, the platform was renamed to UberEATS,[5] and the ordering software was released as its own application, separate from their UberRIDES app.[6][7] At the same time, they expanded the platform to include Barcelona, Chicago, and New York City. UberEATS continued to expand throughout the second half of 2015.

How it works

Users can read the menu, order, and pay for food from participating resturaunts using their device using a application on the iOS or Android platforms or through a web browser.[8][9] Users additionally have the option of giving a tip for delivery.[10] The app detects the user's location and displays restaurants open at the time separately from those that are closed. Payment is charged to a credit/debit card on file with Uber.[11] Meals are delivered by couriers using cars, bikes, or on foot.[12] As of March 2017 the delivery fee is $4.99, excluding courier gratuity.[13] Upon ordering, the customer is notified of the total price combining delivery fee and meal price. Customers can track the delivery status after the order is placed.[14] As of August 2018, Uber Eats changed its flat $4.99 delivery fee rate to varying fee according to the distances.[15] The fee ranges from $2 to $8 as the minimum and maximum rate varying according to the distance covered by delivery services.[16]

The platform occasionally features food from local celebrity chefs wishing to increase their public visibility, including some who do not have physical restaurants.[17]

Depending on the city, people can sign up to deliver food orders for Uber Eats using their car, bike, scooter, or on foot. Delivery partners earn money for each delivery trip based on number of trips and the distance between the restaurant and the dropoff location. In most cities, partners must be 19 years of age or older in order to participate. Uber drivers who currently provide rides for Uber are also able to sign up to do delivery.[18]

Uberland: How Algorithms Are Rewriting the Rules of Work
Uberland: How Algorithms Are Rewriting the Rules of Work
Silicon Valley technology is transforming the way we work, and Uber is leading the charge. An American startup that promised to deliver entrepreneurship for the masses through its technology, Uber instead built a new template for employment using algorithms and Internet platforms. Upending our understanding of work in the digital age, Uberland paints a future where any of us might be managed by a faceless boss.   The neutral language of technology masks the powerful influence algorithms have across the New Economy. Uberland chronicles the stories of drivers in more than twenty-five cities in the United States and Canada over four years, shedding light on their working conditions and providing a window into how they feel behind the wheel. The book also explores Uber’s outsized influence around the world: the billion-dollar company is now influencing everything from debates about sexual harassment and transportation regulations to racial equality campaigns and labor rights initiatives.   Based on award-winning technology ethnographer Alex Rosenblat’s firsthand experience of riding over 5,000 miles with Uber drivers, daily visits to online forums, and face-to-face discussions with senior Uber employees, Uberland goes beyond the headlines to reveal the complicated politics of popular technologies that are manipulating both workers and consumers.

Raw Deal: How the "Uber Economy" and Runaway Capitalism Are Screwing American Workers
Raw Deal: How the "Uber Economy" and Runaway Capitalism Are Screwing American Workers
"What's going to happen to my job?"That's what an increasing number of anxious Americans are asking themselves. The US workforce, which has been one of the most productive and wealthiest in the world, is undergoing an alarming transformation. Increasing numbers of workers find themselves on shaky ground, turned into freelancers, temps and contractors. Even many full-time and professional jobs are experiencing this precarious shift. Within a decade, a near-majority of the 145 million employed Americans will be impacted. Add to that the steamroller of automation, robots and artificial intelligence already replacing millions of workers and projected to "obsolesce" millions more, and the jobs picture starts looking grim. Now a weird yet historic mash-up of Silicon Valley technology and Wall Street greed is thrusting upon us the latest economic fraud: the so-called "sharing economy," with companies like Uber, Airbnb and TaskRabbit allegedly "liberating workers" to become "independent" and "their own CEOs," hiring themselves out for ever-smaller jobs and wages while the companies profit. But this "share the crumbs" economy is just the tip of a looming iceberg that the middle class is drifting toward. Raw Deal: How the "Uber Economy" and Runaway Capitalism Are Screwing American Workers,by veteran journalist Steven Hill, is an exposé that challenges conventional thinking, and the hype celebrating this new economy, by showing why the vision of the "techno sapien" leaders and their Ayn Rand libertarianism is a dead end. In Raw Deal, Steven Hill proposes pragmatic policy solutions to transform the US economy and its safety net and social contract, launching a new kind of deal to restore power back into the hands of American workers.

Rowenta 1700-Watt Micro Steam Iron Stainless Steel Soleplate with Auto-Off, 400-Hole, Brown, DW5080
Rowenta 1700-Watt Micro Steam Iron Stainless Steel Soleplate with Auto-Off, 400-Hole, Brown, DW5080
Made in Germany and loaded with features, this Rowenta Focus steam iron makes easy work of removing wrinkles from fabric. The iron’s smooth-gliding stainless-steel soleplate features 400 steam holes to ensure thorough steam distribution and time-saving efficiency, while its stainless-steel precision tip maneuvers effortlessly over collars, along seams, and between buttons. The iron works with tap water (no need for distilled) and powers on with a simple turn of the thermostat knob, which comes with clearly marked low to high heat settings and options for nylon, silk, wool, cotton, and linen. The iron auto-adjusts the steam output to match the soleplate temperature (turn auto-steam off for dry ironing). It also offers “burst of steam” to remove tough wrinkles and vertical steam for drapes and hanging garments. For safety and peace of mind, the iron shuts off automatically after 8 minutes if left unused in the upright position and after 30 seconds if left in the horizontal position or tipped over. An anti-calcium system prevents impurities for clean steam, and a self-clean system flushes out loose mineral deposits for optimal performance. From work shirts to table linen, the Rowenta Focus steam iron gets the job done.
